much. our next speaker is the co- founder and chief scientific officer of post-it science. he heads the company's goal team that has for more than three decades. he has been a leading pioneer in brain plasticity research. in the late 1980's, he was responsible for inventing something that i hope to own on my own, and in plans to approve my hearing. in 1996, he was the founder and ceo of scientific learning corporation, which markets and distributes software that applies principles of brain plasticity to assist children with language learning in reading. we are plowing -- proud to have him join us today to take part in this forum.

of this. that's nine and a half less school days for us to teach reading, math, science, you name it. but yet we expect our students to graduate on time and to be just as successful as other students with"ej3w nine less instructional days. as a teacher i just want everyone to understand the pressure that you have in fulfilling your lesson plans when you have nine less days to teach the students the same amount of information that you're expected to. five years ago we were ranked 38 out of 50 in( jó the country anr people spending. today ?j x8ñ are ranked 47th. all of the southern states in the u.s. that make far less than we do in our tax dollar base spend more than we do on per people spending. in response to this in 2004 san francisco voters passed a measure to counter this. parents knew that although we were once first in the country in our public school system, not just k-12 but also higher education that we were neveris% going back there. so parents put on the ballot a measure called proposition h so we could ask the city to spend a morgs of our tax dollars to enrich our publi

an extension of science and technology, but i wanted to know what it meant to us, to humanity, to us then and to generations in the future, and i wasn't sure, but all i knew is that the world and the earth and the small part of the universe that i was privileged to see was not an accident, that there is a creator of this universe. and i had the opportunity, a few others have to sit on god's front porch and see a small part of it. and that's what i came home w. the science and technology is obsolete the next day, but the spirit, the meaning, and what neil just said a minute ago, it proved that period of time proved that individually and collectively as a nation we dedicate ourselves to a cause, there is nothing, nothing absolutely that we can't do. all we've got to do is decide to do it, whether it's go to the moon or solve the world crisis, forget off this financial cliff, or whatever, we have to be bold, be bold. bill: thank you, gene. really appreciate that. >> god bless. bill: check it out. job well done. check it out. fly me in the moon here on the fox news channel 9:00 eastern t

investments in the future. it takes investment in equipment and science education and infrastructure and so forth. the question many people don't want to consider is when we get those resources? i asked our research department of the would make a prediction from important the interest costs would be if we did nothing and the estimate without any explosion will was as follows. within 25 years or so, our interest costs would jump from about 1% of gdp to 12% of gdp or roughly four times the total investment made in r&d r&d fer, science jaish infrastructure. and if we ever permit that to happen, we will assure that we are going to have what i call a slow-growth crisis. please take over, this is your meeting. >> one thing i don't plan to be is an economics expert. i felt this way for years it's not just about the health of our economy, it's about around the world it's going to continue to eat at us and when you put in the kind of time bombs of was the intent. it was supposed to be so hammes that congress would never permit it to happen. it's stretched and stressed at the time. i'm one that set
money aside from his first day of work to his last, which n't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. connell: ibm decides to hold a match before the end of the year. daaen: good for the company. allows them to hold onto the money for longer. save on administrative costs. maybe get people out the door before they make the match. connell: the disadvantage would be for that employee. dagen: kelly green wrote all about it. she gets the credit today in the "wall street journal." she is here today. this is a huge move. >> even if you do not work for ibm, if you are in a 401(k) plan and you have a company in the middle of a big, huge, cost-cutting kind of push, this is something a lot of companies are looking at doing. we talk with benefit consultants who say this is frequently on the list of ideas. it is not all terrible. it may allow a company that would keep a match that other words would not keep it at all or reduce it. connell: you'd be more worried as an employee if we are not matching and at all. that would tell you something about the financial health of the com

find something else out about them. keach: barbour's curiosity led him to the modern science of fingerprints where he discovered that with a large enough sample he might be able to discern the gender of the person who made the print. males have wider ridges. females have narrower ones. through trial and error, he devised a technique to make permanent molds of the fingerprints. from these he began to construct a sample. finally, an intriguing discovery -- direct evidence that one set of workers was being replaced by another. barbour: it appears that the early handmade figurines were made by females. after the establishment of apartment compounds in teotihuacan about 250 a.d., you get a shift to wider ridges on the late handmade figurines and the early moldmade figurines. so it appears that when you have the development of the apartment compound that males come into the industry. keach: so as the city grew, the figurine industry changed. initially worked by women, probably as part of their domestic duties, it became a separate full-time specialization performed by men. with men
science. one of the most notable things about the proposition 8 cases is that their one sole key witness opposing marriage equality has come to our side and did not end up in favor of guy marriage now. what happens when we tell our stories, when we share our stories who we really are? we dismiss those lies and stereotypes and i hope we get to do that again at the supreme court very soon. we change minds. people actually get to meet us and that's the power of the court. that's why it's so important that guy and lesbians use the courts to protect the oath to tell the full truth. >> and jonathan, young people -- i was startled at the numbers when polled, 18 to 29-year-olds, 63% supported. about two-thirds. and 35% oppose it. and i think that says a lot, jonathan. >> right. that means that for young people, the people who follow us, this is not a big deal. they are sitting talking to their friends wondering why the grownups cannot get with it and see that this is al no-brainer. this is a civil rights issue that same-sex couples should have every right and responsibility that comes with marri
